Aaron's first release on Itunes Dec 2nd! (via Soulspazm).

PRE-ORDER available NOW

2014 was a quite a good year for Aaron, so please, allow me to remind you the highlights: right after the release of the mixtape Potential Fans late 2013, Aaron started 2014 with The Source cypher: Masters Of Ceremony. Soon after, he dropped a banging' video for "Why You Mad For" premiered by Mass Appeal. Briefly after that, Aaron was on the Team BackPack cypher, followed by SXSW where he performed 6 shows. Aaron also made a noted appearance on Jack Thriller's first cypher, 16 Or Better. Back in Seattle for a few days, Aaron was the special guests of the two main (terrestrial) radios out there: Kexp and Kube93FM. Early May, he headlined SOBS, followed by a performance at Santos, opening for Madchild/Swollen Members and Slaine. The following week, he shared the stage with Two 9 and Worlds Fair at Webster Hall! Late September, Aaron was in France for a couple shows. Full house! Early October, Aaron kicked an amazing freestyle on Sway in the Morning, then went on the road for a few shows on The Smokers Club Tour, opening for Method Man, Redman, B-Real and Berner. In the midst of all this, Aaron released numerous other music videos, did many online interviews, has been featured on print magazines (including in France and Japan!) and did photoshoots with dope photographers such as Jerm Cohen, Scut 36 or Bebe Downtown. Oh! And he also met up with Raekwon, just because! :)

After putting out free music for a minute, the Queens representer is now starting a new chapter. The EP was previously streamed on his Soundcloud and the new version of the project includes a bonus track with Adrian Lau (Harry Fraud's artist) and current singles/videos : "Aint Shit" and "L.E.G.". The release will also be accompanied by a new video for "Dreams Money Can't Buy".

Aaron is now gearing up to go on his first headlining European tour starting January 28 in Paris with Smoke DZA.

Video: 60 East - "Andy's Song"

Joey: Growing up in cities like Pomona,CA we are faced with Police Brutality, Gangs, Drugs, and Prostitution everyday. This song is based on actual events that took place in the city of Pomona,CA and have in someway affected my life. After a friend of mine was murdered by the Pomona P.D, I felt it was my duty to create a song that addresses what goes on in this city and others like it.

Audio: Joe Ness f/ Devvon Terrell - "Run Away"

RRP: For some people making music is a hobby but for Joe Ness it is his life. He has been rapping for more than 10+ years. Joe Ness is a rapper from Brooklyn, NY who has perfected the catchy hook to gain fans. Don’t let that fool you because he is great at word play and often you’ll have to listen a few times before you catch onto his metaphors and analogies.
